Back in the Pool

I've been running a bit since I had the cast removed from my hand.  Nothing very impressive, maybe four or five kilometers a day. 

Today, however, I made it back into the pool for the first time in about three weeks.  The doctor gave me the green light to swim last Tuesday when he removed the bandage, but I was hesitant because I thought it would actually hurt.  When I started swimming, my hand did hurt.  As I kept going, the pain diminished so that I didn't notice it so much.  I managed to do 8 full laps, .8 kilometers.  Not too bad for the first time out since the surgery.
